The company that I work for is interested in web enabling various databases. Our web servers are Netscape Enterprise Server 2.0 with NES 3.5.1 installed. The operating system on the server is Irix 6.4 (Unix).

Does anyone if we can install and run Filemaker our current system or would we need to purchase a new server or operating system. I am not a server/operating system techie so any help would be greatly appreciate!

Filemaker runs on WinNT and MacOS. You would would need one of those systems to actually run FMP.

If buying a new system for this, I would suggest a Mac as they require significiently less maintainance and setup than a WinNT system. FMP works over TCP/IP anyway, and file sharing should not be enabled.

      Hello all:
      Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I haven't found an answer to the problem so far. Here it is:
      I have a db created in FMP 5, and its shared as Entry Only in the Web Companion. In IE 5 and 4 on Mac and Win, the Entry Only layout works. On Netscape (Mac, Win I haven't tried yet) I get a short attempt to build the Entry Only layout, wich terminates prematurely, and then builds a List View layout, which allows full manipulation of the data. This is exactly what I don't want!! I need a 'data drop box' without further access to data for web users. The described problem occurs when connecting to FMPro Unlimited directly, or when connecting via FMWSC on OSXS.
      Any hints would be highly appreciated!
      Cheers, and look out for OSX! It's sleek and fast!

      I have set up an Apache Web server running on a Mac OS X server and I have installed the Filemaker web connector. After following the instructions I have been asked to type the URL http://127.0.0.1/FMPro?config to set up the web connector on the server. When I type this I get the message "Not found. The reported URL/FMPro was not found on this server. Can anyone help.

      FileMaker Inc recommends (and has reserved) port 591 for Web Companion. Try that.
